Shaving my hair off and donating it for a wig to raise money for bowel cancer research in New Zealand.


Kia Ora,

My name is Adele and I am a year 9 student in Christchurch. I have decided to raise money for the Bowel Cancer Foundation trust by shaving my hair off and donating it for a wig. I would like to do this because I know several younger people who have been affected by Bowel cancer over the last year. Bowel cancer is thought of as an older persons disease but it is actually much more common than you think in younger people who are often diagnosed when the disease is quite advanced. I want to show my support by raising money for essential research towards this horrible disease.

All of the money raised is going to The Bowel Cancer Foundation Trust to help fund vital research.

Any amount you can donate to the cause, no matter how how small would be greatly appreciated. I would also greatly appreciate it if you can share this page to your connections too.

I will shave my hair off as soon as we reach the target of $5,500

Ngā mihi maioha - thank you in appreciation of your support.
